I was about to write a new post asking about the same thing, but found this thread..
I just bought a used, "very good condition" set of forks, and I was messing around with the damping, and found that one has 30 click range, the other seems to have only 27.
The one with 27 clicks has a very definitive stopping point when I turn it counter clockwise all the way. (-->S) I'm used to that stopping point and I know what it feels like. But when turning it clockwise (<--H) it got a bit stiffer at 26 clicks in. At first I stopped there, confused.. it should have 4 more clicks, and I didn't feel the "stop". So I applied a very slight amount of pressure, only just slightly harder than a normal click, and it clicked again (to 27).
Anyone have any idea if I should just carefully keep turning it, until I get 30 clicks? I'm thinking that maybe it's just a bit stiff from not ever being touched..?
I don't know what to do because A: the other fork has 30 clicks, with a definite "stop" at each end, and B: I didn't feel that stopping point on this one.. it makes sense that it's just stiff and needs to be forced a bit but I don't know enough to know if I'd be damaging the fork or not.
Sorry for the long ramble.. My OCD.. I HATE when things are not even, especially when they should be.
These forks sat unused for several years, they came off an '09 with 7000 miles of mild street use, no stunts or wheelies and as far as I know they've never been serviced, which make the above reply less reassuring to me.. (I'm doubting Yamaha put the caps on unevenly..)
I'd be really grateful for some advice! Cheers!
